Truly satisfying.

A couple purchased a run-down caravan and converted it into a beautiful camper vintage lovers can only dream of.

The 52-year-old camper had been advertised for just £50, a great bargain for any aspiring DIY enthusiast and they immediately knew they had to buy it.

“We reused most things and bought 2nd hand. Her name is Iris.”
